Off the wall suggestions for your Easter basket

Jolly Rancher Sours Bunnies

Now THIS was something I was dreading. To the Sour Bunnies’ credit, I only tasted the watermelon and cherry part of their play group. Apple and orange deserve a fair shot, but my palate couldn’t take it.

Rueda - The fuller body overpowered the whole point of these bunnies’ existence: sourness. It did calm down the artificial qualities nicely.

Rosé - If you want to experience an explosion of nastiness in your mouth, here’s your chance.

Bubbly - Please, don’t try this combo at home!

You might also try: A floral white like Viognier that has a touch of sweetness and can drown out the heavy acid and sugar.

    All chocolate with Jerez or Montilla Pedro Ximenes (PX).
    Dark chocolate with Port LBV.

    Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz?? It's a great wine for people trying to break the Moscato habit, and it's pretty good with spicier things, but even the thought of chocolates or Peeps with this makes me cringe. (grit teeth and shiver)
